GRANTING HUMAN RIGHTS TO ANIMALS, WATER, AND NATURE
Discussed by Wesley J. Smith
with Discovery Institute (www.discovery.org)


Part 1 of 2

The Left has officially gone crazy. And Wesley J. Smith with the Discovery Institute has details today on just how crazy they have become.

For more on this topic from Wesley, click here.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are animal rights activists arguing in court that animals should have constitutionally protected rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness just like humans? Are they arguing that animals and humans have “equal moral value”? Wesley wants to make clear that he does not advocate for animal cruelty.

Do these animal rights activists want to stop ALL animal ownership – period?

Who is Gary Francione? What are some of his ideologies?

What’s UP with the highest court in New York hearing a case where animal activists want an ELEPHANT declared a person? Did they do the same with chimpanzees? What did the original judge rule on this?

Did a court in Argentina rule that orangutans are “not human persons”?

Some are even arguing for “water and nature rights”. Is a river or waterway “human” by definition? Listen close to this ruling! It’s insane!

How many rivers across the world have already been declared persons and given rights?



PART 2 OF 2 - GRANTING HUMAN RIGHTS TO ANIMALS, WATER, AND NATURE
Discussed by Wesley J. Smith
with Discovery Institute (www.discovery.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is animal welfare an expression of human exceptionalism? Wesley explains that we do have a responsibility to help and protect all animals – even when there is no benefit to humans or nature. On the contrary, animals have no responsibility to humans or nature.

When animals and objects – trees, waterways, the wind – becoming persons and off limits to being used by man, will man be forced to survive without food, water, and energy? Bottom Line: These animal rights activists are anti-human. “They’re not logical. They’re emotional. These people don’t think; they feel. And there is a distinction between those concepts,” Wesely says.

Have some animal activists really stated that they wish COVID-19 was worse so it would kill more of the world’s population?



CELEBRATING BIRTH FATHERS
Discussed by Paul Batura
with Focus on the Family www.Family.org

Birth fathers rarely play a starring role in abortion AND adoption. And this needs to change.

Paul Batura and wife, Julie, are the proud parents of three boys, all of whom they adopted. They are grateful for their boys’ biological parent’s decision of adoption and not abortion.

To read Paul’s op-ed on this topic, click here.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Do many boyfriends pressure girlfriends to do something they regret for the rest of their lives?

What words of encouragement does Paul have for the birth fathers that supported the adoption of their child?

Has Paul met the biological fathers for his three sons? If they happened upon Paul’s home, what would they see?

Why did Paul’s mother teach him the importance of cultivating a beautiful mind? Why has this stuck with him during his adult life? Paul remembers the Apostle Paul’s words in Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

What prayer does Paul pray with his boys every night at bedtime?

What words of encouragement does Paul have for women who have found themselves in a crisis pregnancy?

NEW MORNING MERCIES

INTRODUCTION TO PHILIPPIANS
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 2

Mark Lanier begins a new series this week on the book of Philippians. This letter, written by Paul, is vastly different than the letter written to the Galatians. This week he will look at the background of the town, why Paul went to Philippi, and the people he met while in the city.

To view Mark Lanier’s video for this lesson, click here.

If you have a prayer request, need Scripture encouragement, or would like a copy of Mark’s lessons each week, email wantmore@biblical-literacy.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

To understand the full background of the city of Philippi and Paul’s reason for going there, Mark believes you have to go all the way back to the beginning. Well, not to Adam and Eve, but to the beginning of Paul’s ministry. That is the focus of the segment today, discussing Paul’s relationship with Timothy, the region’s importance, and how and why God’s Word affects every aspect of lives.

Tune in tomorrow as Mark discusses the other regional sections of Philippi and the surrounding towns/cities.

PURSUING THE LOST
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Day 2

Should we always be in pursuit of more knowledge about God?   Is GOD pursuing us? How and why does God pursue the lost? Pastor Jarrett Stephens says this: “The Always God always pursues the lost.”

Also --- Pastor Jarrett Stephens newest book, “The Always God has been released!

Find Pastor Jarrett’s sermon here:

Scripture Passage: Luke 15 The Parables of the Lost Sheep, The Lost Coin, and The Prodigal Son

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Did the religious leaders view God as a pursuer of the lost? Are YOU searching for sinners who need Jesus?

In the Parable of the Lost Sheep, who are the “sheep”? Who is the “Shepherd”?

Why did the woman search so diligently for her lost coin? What was so special about it? Are WE as special as that lost coin?

The Prodigal Son was ashamed to go home. Do you ever feel ashamed to run back to Jesus?

Does sin always lead to a miserable end?

Scripture References: Isaiah 53:6; John 1
